The Georgia appeals court will reconsider the disqualification ruling against Fani Willis.

Fani Willis, the District Attorney of Fulton County, Atlanta, was permitted to continue on a case after hiring a special prosecutor who later resigned.

Fani Willis, the District Attorney for Fulton County, attentively listened during the conclusive arguments in her disqualification hearing on March 1 in Atlanta. Despite the situation, she was granted permission to continue working on the case as long as the special prosecutor she enlisted stepped down.

The Georgia Court of Appeals has granted oral arguments in response to former President Donald Trump’s appeal against a decision that allowed Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to continue handling the criminal case involving him and others.

The court’s decision is likely to decrease the chances of the Georgia election interference case going to trial this year.

In a surprising decision this spring, Fulton Judge Scott McAfee granted permission for Willis to continue working on the case, on the condition that the special prosecutor she had been romantically involved with stepped down from his position.

Trump and the other defendants who initially raised allegations of a conflict of interest have appealed that decision.

The question must now be heard and ruled on by the appeals court within two terms, which is approximately six months.

McAfee is not expected to schedule a trial date before that period, which means the case will most likely remain unresolved until the November election.

The decision of the appeals court was praised by Trump’s lawyer in Georgia, while the DA’s office declined to comment.

In addition to his ongoing legal battles, Trump is also contending with federal charges pertaining to his alleged attempts to overturn the outcome of the 2020 election. Furthermore, he is facing accusations of mishandling classified documents. These cases, too, have experienced delays.
